Luxury rugs: how they are made

The distinguishing mark which really characterizes the best modern rugs is the quality of fibres and the ability of making manufacturing.

These two elements define the final charming of a rug that is not only a piece of furniture, but a sense experience.

How are they made?

  1. Handknotted rugs: they are made with the handknotting technique, an ancient Iranian, Indian, Turkish art.
  2. Handtufted rugs: they are made with a semimanual technique which entails the punching of wool yarns, silk and viscose on cotton cloth fastened on a loom.

  3. Hand-loom rugs: they are made by hand with the warp weave technique and with the help of a loom which makes working easier.

  4. Sumak: they are handembroidered with the “sumak” technique. Their main feature is the lack of pile, for this reason they are reversible.

How to choose sizes and place your rug


A) 240x170 cm
B) 200x300 cm
C) 250x350 cm
D) 300x400 cm

It is necessary to measure the space for the rug in order to find the most suitable size. Rough and wrong measurement would be very bad in terms of harmony and practicality.

The above-mentioned sizes are standard, but specialized firms make custom-made rugs with the sizes the customer demand so that the rug covers the room perfectly.



Some firms provide a free trial offer at your home where the rug is taken and placed in the room it is for, so that you can buy it peacefully being aware that the rug is in the desired place perfectly.

The rug you try at your home is often completely different from the one you see in the shop; in our rooms it has got different light and shades effects and that is due to the different brightness of the room. For this reason, even the colour takes new shades which do not always correspond to the desired ones.

You should have direct experience with the rug and not merely look at the illustrated catalogue or the one in the shop, but you should look for a firm which provides this kind of service at your home.

 How to place the rug

The right position of rugs is important not only to enhance your rooms and interior design style , but also to give a unique and personal high-class touch to all your rooms.

If it is for your sitting room

Some people think that a rug which covers all the elements in a room has got a better aesthetic effect. As you can see in the picture, the rug covers the two sofas and the table entirely.
In this exemple, there is a different interior design strategy: the rug covers the elements in the sitting room only partially. The two sofas are on the two ends of the rug so as to fasten it on the floor and not to make it run.
Another way of furnishing is to make the rug the core of your sitting room and arrange all its elements around the rug. However, this solution is less and less chosen since the effect of the sofas covered by the rug is much more pleasant.

If it is for your dining room

In the dining room the most classic placing is the following. Besides being pleasant aesthetically, it is also very functional. Being much bigger than the table, the rug does not risk of getting caught by the chairs.

This example helps understand fully how much the right placing is important, and the right size, too; a smaller rug would hinder your movements if you sat down at the table or left it.


If it is for your bedroom

In the bedroom the most popular furnishing strategy if you want to get up on the right foot is the following.

The upper edge of the rug is fastened by the bed which prevents its movement. In this case, too, placing is personal and changes according to the customer’s taste.



If you are afraid of measurement of your room and you do not know how to place the rug, you should turn to an architect.

A design and interior design professional can upset the aspect of your room in a positive way finding the perfect placing of your rug whose shape suits your rooms most.

People who have asked an architect have turned their home into a place of extraordinary beauty finding furnishing strategies they have never thought about before.

 Cleaning the rug 

Good cleaning and maintenance are the best way to keep a lasting rug.


Daily cleaning can be done with the vacuum cleaner. You must not use the electric broom with rollers.

For periodic cleaning 


The best thing to do for deep cleaning is to turn to a specialized laundry and have your rug dry-cleaned. If you want to clean it at your home, you should clean it with mild soap and water below 30°C.

What the most popular colours are

The first thing to do when you invest in a new rug is to picture it in the room where it will be placed: the room which it will be for and all the other elements avoiding excessive matchings or clashing style.

They are usually beige, white, pearl-grey, dark grey and brown.
